As you can see, a majority of the country will not see the beautiful yet haunting sight of the solar eclipse. And even the ones that do, will not get a close up view of the Sun. If that is something you're interested in, then The Virtual Telescope Project 2.0 is going to host a free livestream where it will capture a detailed view of the solar eclipse. The eclipse will be filmed from Rome, Italy and can be watched either on the official website or its YouTube channel.
